[a]This was (A)the true Light [b]that, coming into the world, enlightens every person. 10 He was in the world, and (B)the world came into being through Him, and yet the world did not [c]know Him. 11 He came to His [d]own, and His own people did not [e]accept Him. 12 But [f]as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become (C)children of God, (D)to those who [g]believe in His name, 13 (E)who were [h]born, not of [i]blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of a man, but of God.

The Word Made Flesh

14 And (F)the Word (G)became flesh, and (H)dwelt among us; and (I)we saw His glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of (J)grace and (K)truth.
